PUDUCHERRY: After AIADMK and DMK, the Puducherry unit of Bharatiya Janata Party, an ally of the ruling AINRC has criticised CM N Rangasamy for failing to attend the NITI Aayog meeting in New Delhi.

In a statement, general secretary of the local unit V Swaminathan said the CM’s failure to attend the meeting would certainly hinder the development of the UT. He said the Congress party which ruled at the Centre for 50 years used to evolve and implement plans with the help of officials in the name of ‘planning commission’ ignoring the development of the poor in the country and without consulting CMs. This resulted in the enhancement of the number of BPL people in the country. PM Modi dissolved the planning commission and constituted the NITI Aayog. Under the new set up, development schemes were evolved after consultation with the CMs and this meeting was important for the development of every State. The CMs of Congress ruled States boycotted the meeting without being concerned about the development of their States. The people of the UT are confused with Rangasamy skipping the meet, he charged.
